The sun is shining and spring is in the air! Oftentimes, people redecorate or remodel the inside of their home more often than they do the exterior. But that doesn’t need to be the case. It can be as simple as installing some lighting or a little more time-consuming like re-potting plants. Colorful flowers and a new look for the lawn always give your home a fresh look as well. Here are our top five easy landscaping projects to get you outdoors and mix up your landscaping features.
Create a Pathway
To guide you and visitors throughout your yard and link different areas together, install a pathway. You can use pieces from a variety of materials, including reclaimed pallet wood, flagstones, gravel, and more. Don’t be afraid to add texture and color.
Add a Wall or Border
Installing a flagstone, rock, or brick wall around flower beds or trees adds a sleek, clean look to your landscaping. A wall or a border also helps separate different sections of your yard.
Install a Water Feature
Nothing says zen quite like the sound of trickling water as you relax in your backyard. You can start simple by purchasing and installing a small feature powered by a solar panel. Ready for more? Create a larger focal point in your yard by installing a waterfall wall or small pond.
Light Your Way
An easy way to transform your yard is to strategically use lighting. Place cool-toned lights high in trees to recreate a moonlight feel, use pathway lights to naturally guide the eye, or highlight objects or plants. Solar powered lights can be quick and easy to install.
Expand your yard space by drawing the eye to the sky with a trellis fence or screen made of wood or metal. Once you install your trellis, select your climbing plants and vines and get to planting!
